Happy Birthday ...

Hi Everybody,

I made this card  for a special person in our family as it was her birthday and I wanted something really pretty.

I have used quite a selection of dies and the central panel is using the Diamond and Grateful Lattice sets.

I have added this on foam pads to create some depth to the card.

The ribbon is from my stash and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and to the centre of the flowers I have added in a pretty Decorative Hatpin

I  have added in  Pierced Edges  (Tutorial)  to the card and the embossing is the A4 folder from Crafters Companion called Argyle

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
